Description: This dramatic Integral Damascus Clip Point Hunter is a spectacular knife by Journeyman Smith Kelly Vermeer-Vella. Kelly is a Forged in Fire champion, an exceptional bladesmith, and a renowned farrier. Perhaps it is no surprise that she has won numerous awards including Best Fixed Blade at the 2021 ICCE custom knife show.
The 4-3/4 inch blade was hard forged from Kelly's own Riptide pattern damascus. The detailed pattern was forged to shape from 1075 and 15N20 carbon steels. The pattern is exceptionally dramatic, combining fine and bold patterns. The blade is a perfect size to get most any task done with ease.
Handle scales are rosewood, set on a full tang with hidden bolt rivets and a KV mosaic pin. Showing tremendous skill at the forge, the bolster on this clip point hunter is fully integral. This technique, which results in superior strength takes a particularly talented bladesmith.
A pouch style leather sheath makes it easy to keep this knife close by.
Exceptional work throughout!
